Try placing a mirror behind a piece of furni- ture in a tight spot. This will immediately give you a feeling of openness. Or try plac- ing a mirror across from a window; reflec- tions of the outdoors will give the illusion of another window. Go big and create the unexpected, try leaning a large framed mirror against a wall or angle a mirror towards a favorite piece of art, this works beautifully in a small space and creates depth.

Kudos go out to Mike Giacoppo, longtime president of the Massachusetts Italian American Police Officers Association, who welcomed all present to the awards banquet. A number of police officer retirees were honored at the event and a number of high school graduates received college scholarships. At last year's banquet I was hon- ored for over 27 years of ser- vice as a police officer with a great looking plaque hon- oring my law enforcement career. This year among the many honorees were Speaker Bob DeLeo, who was awarded the Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross with Super- intendent Frank Mancini Order of Saint Michael the Archangel Award. Other awardees included Lino Rullo (Marconi Award) for his outstanding contributions in the field of public and com- munity service, BPD Police Commissioner Bill Evans (Law Enforcement Distin- guished Community Ser- vice Award), the MBTA Po- lice SWAT team (Law Enforcement Medal of Valor) and this year's Medal of Valor Award went to Patrolman John Moynihan, who was critically injured back on March 27 th during a motor vehicle stop. He was shot in the face and was very lucky to survive that shooting and be at Angelica's to pick up his award. BPD Police Commissioner Bill Evans, Officer John Moynihan and Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross Lino Rullo honored with the Marconi Service Award The Award is presented to someone for an act of brav- ery facing great risk to him- self while performing his duty. Officer Moynihan has made a miraculous recov- ery. He has a tough road ahead of him as he fights to return to his role as police officer. As Police Commis- sioner Bill Evans said, "It is always meaningful any time law enforcement is recog- nized, especially now, when it's a tough time in the country. It's nice when the good work that sometimes goes unrecognized is no- ticed." I took a moment at tlve event to chat with this brave officer and offered my words of encouragement, as did everyone else. With all the bad press police officers are receiving lately, a positive story on law enforcement was so needed. Also, remembered at this event were Firefighters Eddie Walsh and Michael Kennedy, who were killed during the March 26, 2014 fire in the Back Bay. Both firefighters received medals of valor.
